Is it still handcrafted if it’s from an iPhone?

The folks at Lumi have created an iOS app called Lumitype, and used it as the basis for their new silkscreening process.

Read the Design Taxi piece here, and if the pitch gets your tech/craft juices flowing, you can help them out on their Kickstarter. If the idea irks your Handmade Rules ideology, start a conversation in the comments!

Voting on shirt designs is NOW OPEN!

Please note: Voting has closed. Click here to see the winners of our competition!

Thank you to all of the wonderful artists who submitted work to our online gallery. Below are designs that were submitted for consideration to be the featured designs during our live screenprinting workshop at Home Room on April 11.

Please vote for the two images you would most like to sport on a super cool tee! The two designs with the most votes by April 8 will be burned onto silkscreens so we (that’s us and you!) can print them onto T-shirts to take home with you! The two winners will be announced on April 8.

Then join us on April 11 at Home Room to print your own shirt with one of the winning designs! Some shirts will be available, but we encourage you to bring your own. Not only will you be supporting an up-and-coming L.A. artist, but you’ll look good doing it!
